5 Things: About Me Edition

In an effort to be a bit more positive, especially on quiet weekends, I am going to start to do 5 things Saturdays. It could be random things but today is 5 things you may or may not know about me.

1.I am excited that football is back. I love football and I love the New England Patriots.  Put me in front of a TV with football on it and I will watch and get sucked in.


2.I have always wanted to go to Bora Bora since reading Tales of the South Pacific by James Michener but I also want to go      Churchill,  Manitoba to see the polar bears and Scotland to listen to the accents.


3.When I was a kid, I wrote stories. Notebooks and notebooks of stories. I wonder what happened to them.


4. I had chicken vindaloo for dinner tonight. I love Indian food!

5.I have a bit of a magazine problem. Real Simple, Country Living, Shape, Women’s Health, Self, Weight Watchers, Martha Stewart, Everyday Food, Vogue Knitting, Smithsonian, Rachel Ray…. most from Diet Coke points or other free type of offers but really, I get more than I need. I need to thin out the magazines.


I do love Real Simple magazine and it won’t be thinned.


  1. I order a lot of mine through Amazon, didn't know about the points. Can you get points for Sprite? ;) I get Woman's Day, Glamour, Good Housekeeping, Entertainment Weekly, and Family Circle but I think most of mine are almost up because they keep sending me those scary notices. Oh well.

  2. Look at those crystal clear waters! That is my ideal type of place to go on holiday. I like swimming, but I don't trust marine life and I like to see what lurks in the depths :)

  3. I took an around the world trip by myself for my 34th birthday and went to Fiji. It was UNREAL!!! Best experience of my life. A little scary being that far away from home, all on your own, but I needed to do it....Needed to prove to myself that I could.

    I also have a magazine addiction. Coastal Living, Country Living, of course Brides magazine and every photography magazine you could imagine!!

    Jen, it is nice to meet you!


I love your comments!
